Oyogist has Learned that the Ethiopian Airlines has denied reports that it shipped arms to the conflict-hit region of Tigray.

The airline said that after the airspace was reopened it only gave “commercial essential service by transporting civilians”.

The Government of Tigray had earlier ordered a temporary suspension of flights to and from the Tigray region because of the conflict that started in November 2020.

The airspace was reopened in December 2020 then closed again few weeks ago when Tigray rebels started fighting against pro-government forces.

Meanwhile, Ethiopian Airlines says it has had “no flight to the region” since the recent closure.

The airline further stated that the reports are from people who want to defame and spoil its image.
